Mike Weber

Hey! Red Wings fan coming in peace here!

What do you think about Mike Weber? I got some inside information that he may sign for my team here in Norway in a couple of days, so wondering what you guys think of him!

Its not confirmed in anyway, but heard that if a chunk of games are canceled again he's coming over.

Thanks!

In the NHL he's a serviceable 6-7 depth guy. Some nights he's looked better, but not many. He has the occasional hand grenade moment. If he keeps his game simple he'll be pretty effective.

Decent stay at home defender. Has a very limited offensive game and probably won't touch the powerplay, but he's good in his own end and on the penalty kill. Won't do anything that makes your jaw drop, but generally doesn't allow anything that makes you facepalm, either. Can be beaten with speed, but it's not super often. Just a steady, quiet defensive defenseman, would be a good addition to a team, especially if he's not facing insane talent.

One of the worst defensemen in the NHL with the puck on his stick in his own zone and under pressure. Very vulnerable against a heavy forecheck. Not much of an offensive presence in the offensive zone, but not lost, either. Good on the PK. Willing to block shots and play the body.

In the NHL, he's a serviceable stay-at-home, physical 6-7 defender. Still young, so he could solidify himself as a solid bottom pairing guy yet. He's coming off a pretty rough season, though.

Not sure what the rules are on fighting on your league, but he's also willing to drop the gloves. That being said, he's really really bad at fighting on skates.

OK, thanks guys! Thats what I thought, but he'll probably do more then good in this league!

Oh, and no. There is no fighting in this league. Automatic game misconduct if you drop the gloves!

He also can apparently grow a decent beard:

It may take Weber 10x as long to grow a beard as Leino, but the end results are respectable.

Lumberjack style.

He is playing his first game right now. Just got a tripping minor and caused a 5-3 because of it! His team are up 1-0 in the first so far!

Edit: They killed the PP.

After 1st: +1 and 2PIM. Deryk Engelland on the opposing team is -1. He is doing good so far!

EDIT: Weber got hit by a shot in front of his own net and it goes in +/- 0
Score is 2-1 LÝrenskog (Weber's team)
